The BBC in Copșa Mare
Updated: Nov 5, 2019
The BBC was in Copșa Mare this week to make a short film and interview with Ioan-Cristian Bica, the village priest and beekeeper. Nick Thorpe, who has been the BBC's correspondent in the region for almost 30 years, and Gergö his cameraman, spent the day filming in the village and in nearby Richiș where they met the veteran beekeeper Wilhelm Untch.
The short documentary piece examines the balance these two beekeepers strike between the desire for productivity in their bees and purity in their honeys in the face of spreading industrial agriculture. You may listen to it here - from 21.27 in the programme.
